Learns bugger all that is, what an absolute joke defence we have, Koscielny adds what exactly? Apart from opening his goal scoring account, shame it was in his own net though.
Chamakh’s nickname was the plank in France, I’m guessing we’ll be giving that one to Fabianski after this game.
What this game showed us is that Fabianski is even worse than we thought he was, if we play Liverpool with that team we’ll get hammered.
Nasri looked great as did Chamakh, when Chamakh got the score back to 1-3 he held of four players, laid it off to Nasri, who whipped it back in the box for a Chamakh header, superb.
Chezzer came on for the second half and it only took our woeful defence 3 minutes for him to show how good he really is, in fact he’s as good as Fabianski’s bad, he pulled off a fantastic double save, awesome. Kept us in the game, no doubt.
No wonder they nicknamed him ‘The wall’
Shortly after that, a Vela free kick saw Eboue of all people, nick in behind the keeper to head in, 2-3.
54 minutes and a Clichy howler let in Manu who was bearing down on goal before Vermaelen hacked him down, no penalty, what a let off, we should have been 4-2 down and with only 10 men left on the pitch, lucky, lucky Arsenal.
Well Eboue scores a blinder, on 60 minutes he receives from Wilshere and waits for the keeper to move, then he lets rip 3-3, see you Theo I’m afraid.
2 minutes later and Legia start defending like us, a ball over the top sees Gibbs rap one in the roof of the net from the left wing.
76 minutes and Koscielny’s ball watching allows them an equaliser, Arsene, whoever recommended this bloke, you need to sack, was it the same scout who suggested you bought Stepanovs?
80 minutes and a flick on sees JET hold off their full back and smash the ball in 4-5 to the good guys.
83 minutes and Nasri is rewarded for his performance with a low well hit free kick, 4-6 maybe their keeper is as bad as Fabianski.
An injury time Lansbury cock up sees our shocking defence let in another, 5-6
This is Legia Warsaw people, what happens when we play a Premiership team? We let in 5 goals for Christ’s sake, 5 goals, what exactly did Wenger learn then from our poor defending last year?
There is no way he had been tracking Koscielny, no way, I bet he bought him sight unseen on the recomendation of his mate Grimandi. He really isn’t the answer, if anything we are worse than last season, we saw the cracks against Celtic, Arsene, you have a week to sort this out, you let 4 defenders leave and replaced them with one who isn’t as good as Senderos.
Even the most die hard AKB can see that we need a keeper and a proper old fashioned centre back, if they can’t, then they can’t like Arsenal as much as I do.
I write a positive post on Friday and then watch this game, stop being so tight, go and spend the money or you will be throwing away another season, what must Cesc be thinking?
I know that Vermaelen was rubbish last pre-season and to be honest wasn’t great yesterday, I may be unfair on Koscienly but the reason is, he’s another Vermaelen, we don’t need two, that’s like having two Keowns, we need a big lump in there that can out jump everyone, we’ve needed that for years.
It’s just disappointing to see we have learned little from last year, 1 week to go and we still haven’t decided which one of our awful keepers we are going with, 1 week to go and we are still crap at defending, perhaps our manager should have spent the summer sorting that out and not commentating.
Still at least Wilshere and Gibbs have been called up by England, I wonder if we’ll keep Jack now, it’s Fabianski and Almunia he should be loaning out, no one would want them though, would they?
Have a great Sunday Grovers, enjoy the Community Shield, we’ll get to see how far they have come!
